Description: Mediterraneo was created out of a desire to explore and share the unique, seasonal, healthy opportunities of the Mediterranean Cuisine, from the shores of Southern Europe to the coast of North Africa. At Mediterraneo, we carefully and without compromise choose each ingredient for its authenticity, quality, and freshness. We invite you to join us and discover for yourself why in 201 Magazine, Best of Bergen, Mediterraneo has been voted the "Best Mediterranean Restaurant in Bergen County" several years in a row. Whether it's a business lunch, a friends get together, a romantic dinner for two, or a private party, we will make sure to offer you a wonderful dining experience. We recommend the delicious, authentic Spanish tapas, the tender Moroccan lamb tagine with dried fruits and our fresh fish, daily imported from the Mediterranean area.

This is my go to place when I am in the area, and it just gets better and better after each visit.
I like their eclectic, Mediterranean-inspired menu, delicious food, with well sized portions and great flavors. The servers here are friendly and attentive.
This week, when I went again, I had a nice surprise, they renovated the place, and changed the décor and colors. With the new blue and white hues, the restaurant looks modern, trendy and classy, but still warm and inviting.
My friend and I shared a delicious vegetarian appetizer made of smoky eggplant and peppers with warm goat cheese, the octopus, which is the best I have ever had (so tender, with a smoky flavor that made it so good) and the shrimp with garlic, in olive oil.
For entree, we had the lamb tagine, very tender and interesting, with dried fruits and exotic spices and the orata fish, Tuscany style (simple, delicate and flavorful combination). We finished our meal with a wonderful, light, melts in your mouth chocolate and hazelnut cake.
Another great experience, can’t wait to come back !

The staff was excellent as was the food. The Chef came to our table to explain the Swordfish special. The sword fish was cooked perfectly and the flavors were fantastic. I will be returning to this restaurant soon and plan on bringing friends.

I was in Ridgewood visiting family and decided to go out to dinner with my wife. She was in the mood for mediterranean and she had gotten the recommendation from her friends in the area to try out Mediterraneo. I ordered the branzino, my wife had the paella and we both were pleasantly surprised by how incredible the food was. The interior was beautiful and looked newly renovated, which set the mood for our date. Our server's name was Johnny, and boy was he a charmer. Really welcomed us to the restaurant and made us feel at home. Highly recommend. Great night.
